The first class was the wall hanging class, 'The road to my house' and once the heater had warmed the room up my girls were off! Some very pretty backgrounds put together and then they started on their free motion stitching.
What do you think of Catherine's gorgeous background she's binding? I love the patchwork of colour.
Here are a few works in progress.
I'm sorry I can't remember everyone's names! But you can see these girls put a lot of energy into all the free motion stitching and then all the hand embroidery. I was very proud of what they achieved by the end of two days. Each student had a unique hanging that told stories of where they had lived, their families, places they had been, journey's they had taken. Each of them had embraced free motion stitching and created amazing stories.
Well done girls!!
